Neil Young made clear once again Friday that he doesn’t like it when one of his songs is used during a public appearance by President Trump.

On Friday night, Young’s 1989 song, “Rockin’ in the Free World,” was played during the president’s Independence Day weekend event at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This is NOT ok with me,” the Canadian-born rocker, who became a U.S. citizen in January after living in Northern California for decades, wrote on social media.

He posted a follow-up with a tweet declaring: “I stand in solidarity with the Lakota Sioux & this is NOT ok with me.”

Native American tribes in South Dakota protested against the event. 15 protesters were arrested after they blocked an access road to Mount Rushmore before President Donald J. Trump participated in the Independence Day kick-off on Friday night.

Protesters say that Mount Rushmore is on land “violently stolen” and that the site was “used to pay homage to leaders hostile to native people,” Fox News reports.

“Mount Rushmore is a symbol of white supremacy, of structural racism that’s still alive and well in society today,” said Nick Tilsen, a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe and president of a local activist organization called NDN Collective, according to The Associated Press. “It’s an injustice to actively steal Indigenous people’s land then carve the white faces of the conquerors who committed genocide.”
